Hedda Gabler - Act 4 Hedda Gabler's vision was to extract beauty out of chaos. Her goal was to rock hard and dark, granite rather than concrete. Hedda Gabler performed between 1982 and 1990, when the band fell apart in a disgracious manner. Today their musical legacy lives on in a series of hard-to-find releases and re-releases. Hedda Gabler was incorporated in 1982 by three musicians in The Netherlands with Wim de Jonge at the center as singer/guitarist, mutating from earlier line-ups like Boots For Dancing and Upset Music.
